Our 2015 Canfield Vineyard Pinot Noir is an expression of the Canfield Vineyard located in the southern tip of the Russian River Valley. Cold, windy and close the coast, the Pinot Noir from this vineyard begins with aromas of dried lavender, Rainier cherry and Applewood chips enveloped with whispers of umami. The palate is full with a crisp inherent acidity and flavors of candied orange peel, roasted almond, crushed cranberry and star anise. Try this wine with ponzu-marinated skirt steak with sautéed enoki mushrooms or triple cream brie with a pomegranate-balsamic reduction. 

We hand-harvested whole Pinot Noir clusters, de-stemmed them and gravity-fed them into small, three- to 10-ton open-top fermentors. Following a five-day cold soak, the must fermented for seven to 10 days using Burgundy and natural yeasts. The wine was drained to barrel to undergo malolactic fermentation in 100% French oak, 38% of which was new. Each vineyard, block and clone was kept separate until blending.
